Mac's are probably one of the best computers in the world (compared to Windows, they are the best). Here's what you can do with a Mac that you can't or barely can do on a PC. Here's the example: You work for a design company and need to print some posters from your Insert Printer Here (HP DesignJet 120nr). You also need to burn them a DVD of the original files (Large PSD's) to a DVD of course. You need to download your latest emails and you're trying to download some updates for your Mac OS X system. Among that you're chatting with people on Adium and typing an email. - Among all these things you have only 30 minutes to do all this. - On A PC this is basically/almost impossible to do all at once. With a Mac you can do this + more w/out any extreme slow downs. If you'd like to try this, then do this: Now the designer is doing all these things w/o any hiccups or slow downs: Printing - A poster Burning - A DVD Emails - Downloading and Typing Downloading - Updates for your computer Chatting - On Adium Yes you can do all this on a G4 or a G5 and not have to worry about your computer operating like a 386 using Windows XP. Try it some time, I did and I told people about it and they're like - oh don't do that, you'll freeze your system, but HA, I didn't so there! If that helps any of you who need a computer to work like a computer.
